Specialist police officers talk man from roof in Loughborough
Police spent several hours trying to talk a man down from a roof.
Officers were called to a street off Epinal Way, Loughborough, just before 9am on Saturday. Trained negotiators were later brought in.
Police would not say what the rooftop protest was about but at 6.30pm the man agreed to come down.
A passer-by, who did not want to be named, said that at one point in the afternoon there were four police vans and more than 50 officers at the scene.

Passing cars were beeping their horns in support of the man.
A police spokeswoman said: "Police in Loughborough cordoned off an area after a man climbed on to the roof of a house, just before 9am.
"Specially trained negotiators spoke to him and, in the interests of public safety, cordons were put in place while the incident was ongoing.
"He eventually came down at 6.30pm and was arrested."
She said that no-one was hurt.
